Mystery Subsim #12

Here is the initial shot of Mystery Subsim #12

Everyone knows this famous subsim!

If you guess, and you are wrong, then you have only two wrong guesses left in the whole contest before your participation ends, so guess wisely (if you are really sure). If you don't know, don't waste a guess! You can only guess incorrectly three times in the contest.

You cannot EDIT your post in this contest.

Remember the rules!!

If no one tries to guess this shot, or no one guesses correctly, there will be an expanded shot to follow.

Good hunting!
Neal

Between the two of us, we've taken care of both my ideas, Fincuan. I was thinking it was one of those, but the ships in the background seemed too 'on rails' to be the second.

Guess I'll see.

From the review:

Quote:
Right away most cyber-captains will want to set the realism options and navigate through to a single mission and test the waters. When the game begins you'll realize you aren't in 1996 anymore. The graphics are 3D and quite good for a subsim. No longer are you restricted to a slice of the sea and sky when on the bridge—now you can look around as you would in real life. The 3D view of your U-boat diving beneath the waves is splendid. And what waves they are! Rolling, undulating swells pitch your boat on all three axes. By this time you’ll have a grin as you order full speed and begin a hunt. Depending on your graphics card, you may see some slight jaggedness on the horizon and mild clipping but overall, the graphics get an A. 3D and good graphics should not be written off as mere eye candy. When you’re running on the surface at night, intercepting an oil tanker, having an unrestricted view of the sky, bridge, and sea give you a better sense of "being there".

So close, Vlad, but you have to tread lightly now, one more incorrect guess and you are out of torpedoes.

Fincuan is two away from becoming our first Ace

Mystery Subsim #13 will be unlucky for many, but a bonanza for one.
